Okay - this is directly related to your other thread: please define "system call" as I am thinking a string issued to the system() function.

All programming languages issue system calls for such things as acquiring a block of memory, open/close, read/write, and so on.

Homework

Maybe if you just post a scan of your question sheet we could email your teacher the answers for you?
Google for "linux system calls" then you will realise that any compiled language can make a system call directly and most interpreted languages can do it via their interpreter and ones like Java can do it via their virtual machine.

My favorite recent homework story comes from a member here at LQ. He is apparently a teacher. He responded to a homework question on the forum and then saw his answer turned the next day in class. He reports that when he identified himself to the student as being the provider of the answer, the student immediately dropped the class.

Moral: Use caution when posting homework questions.

I think it would be better for students to actually try to learn Linux than just pass the class. Learning Linux is so much fun. ! cheers! :=)

With no response from OP, I'm going to close this.
